08 Feb WORTH IT
Four years ago I bought this skirt at a Worth trunk show. Worth is one of my favorite clothing lines, but the clothes are expensive and I consider my Worth purchases to be very special.
At the show I tried on a sample several sizes larger than what I usually wear. After the Worth representative carefully adjusted the skirt to my body with clothespins, I pictured myself wearing this beautiful silk skirt everywhere and bought it.

When the skirt arrived at my home I eagerly tried it on, but it was so tight through the hips that the zipper wouldn’t budge.
I couldn’t handle this disappointment and put the skirt in the back of my closet where it’s been ever since.
Last week I decided to do something about this big waste of money and got out my seam ripper. I started releasing seams in the lining and decided I better try it on before proceeding.
The skirt fit perfectly

What to do…
Even though this beautiful long skirt fit me the way I imagined it when I tried on the sample years ago, it didn’t stand a chance after making me so miserable all this time.
I really wanted a lined skirt but didn’t want to disturb the pretty border, so I lined two of the panels and left the front panel unlined. This worked well giving the skirt enough weight to hang properly and feel substantial.
It was definitely W O R T H remaking!
